Hewitson Plant Hire has expanded its excavator fleet with the purchase of 50 new Kubota machines, following a period of substantial business growth.

Supplying equipment throughout the North East and Yorkshire, Hewitson purchased the new machinery from P V Dobson & Sons, with the order comprising the Japanese manufacturer’s micro-excavators, the new U50-5 five-tonne mini, and other equipment up to eight tonnes.

Owen Hewitson, director at Hewitson Plant Hire, said: “When operating in the midst of a pandemic, it’s vitally important that we provide operators with machinery that simply gets the job done in the toughest conditions, so it was a simple decision to continue to invest in Kubota excavators.

“The recent business growth is testament to the reputation we have built over the past 25 years on providing market leading machinery to meet customer demand. A vital part of this is the relationship we have with P V Dobson and Kubota and the service and aftersales support they provide.”
